5: Best sandwich ever.
How fun was yesterday's topic? I have so many crazy new combinations to try out! Top of my list is cheese in hot chocolate. Sounds wrong but I think it will be so right.
Today is a hard one, because when I really think about I love sandwiches and I would be hard pressed to pick a favourite. So I thought I would share some of my favourites with you, and I also made a new sandwich as well in honour of MoFo. Certainly I love simple sandwiches. I am a dork and confess that I love a good salad sandwich, and of course a grilled cheese is always welcome. I love Vegemite and cheese sandwiches, and peanut butter and jam sandwiches (strawberry is my favourite), and peanut butter, cream cheese, baby spinach, and raisin sandwiches (just try it). But I also love fancy sandwiches as well. In fact, thinking about it I think I enjoy sandwiches much more as a vegan than as an omni! Anyway, here are some of my favourite types of sandwiches.
Reubens. Reubens aren't something I grew up eating, but I have come to appreciate them through vegan cooking. Of course the champion of all reubens is the Radical Reuben from Chicago Diner. This sandwich was devoured on my most recent trip to the US, and is a sandwich I have been lusting after for a long time.
The Club Sandwich. I must have had club sandwiches in my pregan days, however the first club I remember having as a vegan was from Hungry Tiger Too during my 2011 trip to Portland.
BLT. Hopefully also with avocado! My preference is for tempeh bacon, however I except all delicious vegan bacon options. One of the more interesting BLTs I have had was a yummy eggplant bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich from Petty Cash, a vegan friendly cafe in Sydney.
Finger Sandwiches. Also known as tea sandwiches. Basically any sort of fancy little sandwiches. I love them! Here is a platter of sandwiches from my 30th birthday that included cucumber, cream cheese and dill (the best!) and tomato and basil. I also really like Nuttelex and radish ones as well. Or fancy little pate ones.
There are many, many, many more sandwiches that I have eaten and loved. However everyone has a million posts to read through today, so I'll keep my list short. And talk about the very silly sandwich I made in honour of MoFo. Of course the number one resource for making vegan sandwiches has to be Vegan Sandwiches Save The Day, a book I have sorely neglected. Until now. I present to you...
The MacShroom! Mayo, BBQ sauce coated mushrooms and mac and cheese. Delicious? Yes. Messy? You bet! I had to tinker with the BBQ sauce recipe a little given that I had to use sweetened apple sauce instead of unsweetened apple butter and I left out the coffee because I don't do coffee and the fact that the new liquid smoke I bought is super strong, so I added some extra maple syrup and some tomato puree to balance it back out again. I highly recommend this sandwich.
